In this provocative collection, Beth Spencer breathes new life into the short story form, expanding its boundaries to explore the personal and cultural territory of the television generation. Through a gallery of engaging characters (from Barbara Boulevard to Peta Pan) she looks at the 80s and 90s from the point of view of those raised on cartoons, platform shoes, no fault divorce, and 'The Female Eunuch'. "A writer of exceptional sensitivity, precision and courage... Her stories embody a profound critical engagement with the complexities, ironies and bewilderments of concepts such as sexuality, the family and history..." - Peter Bishop.
